Return appearance

Jonn Lilyea notes that sniveling leftist anti-military tool William Arkin makes his inglorious return after over a year of laying low to host a WaPo forum on Iraq policy.  Arkin you may remember was the guy who trashed the armed forces in a sniveling rant about a year and a half ago, then basically went into hiding after having to face the wrath of an angered public. 

So, what does Arkin come up with this time?  Well, he claims that Bush isn't reducing the numbers of troops in Iraq because of successes in getting things stabilized there, but rather that our military has been defeated and this is a Nixonesque drawdown.  Only thing that needs to be said about Arkin,


On a somewhat related note, Baldi notes that the left has turned against the war in Afghanistan.  No surprise really, we knew it was coming, but that's gonna be a tough one to sell to the public since the left has been flogging their "We should be focused on Afghanistan, that was the just war" talking point for years now as an argument against Iraq.  You can't make that kind of position change without facing serious questioning of your credibility.
